Dr. Neel Sanghavi, general and cosmetic dentist in Colchester, Essex, believes that all dentists should place more of an emphasis on patient education for everyday restorations and treatments in order to foster patient trust and comfort in the dental chair. New technology available is allowing dentists like Dr. Sanghavi to be more transparent with patients in educating them about the state of their oral health, the treatments needed to improve it, and the related costs of those treatments.

“It has been estimated that approximately 90 percent of patient cases go untreated simply because the patient lacks understanding about their condition and the treatment needed to fix it,” said Dr. Neel Sanghavi, general, cosmetic, and dental implants dentist in Colchester, Essex. “We’ve found in our practice that when patients are more informed about the treatments we provide for their oral health, that they feel less apprehensive about their entire visit and are more willing to undergo the treatments that will help them achieve optimal oral health.”

Dr. Sanghavi and his staff use the Guru patient education system to help their patients become well-informed and aware of the treatments they need for oral health. The Guru technology provides animation and step-by-step digital presentations for patients so they can see exactly what will happen during their treatment to improve their oral health. The system also keeps patients informed about the cost of treatment before it is completed, allowing them to make an educated decision rather than just having to trust the word of the dentist or staff.

“By providing patients with a visual presentations rather than just telling them about it, we’re really able to make a presentation that they will remember distinctly about how we’re aiming to improve their dental health,” said Dr. Sanghavi.

At Dentist Direct in Colchester, Dr. Sanghavi and his staff provide a wide range of dental treatments. They are known for being providers of Waterlase dentistry in Colchester, Essex, which eliminates the need for drills and needles in restorative treatments. Dr. Sanghavi is also able to provide Smile Align in Colchester along with snoring appliances for those seeking a more restful sleep.

A practicing dentist for more than 10 years, Dr. Sanghavi is highly trained in both general and restorative dentistry. He attended the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh where he received a post-graduate diploma. He pursued specialist training in restorative dentistry, but due to his affinity of long-term patient relationships, Dr. Sanghavi chose to practice as a general dentist. During his many years as a professional, Dr. Sanghavi has completed numerous continuing education courses in the U.K., Europe, and the U.S. to ensure that he can provide his patients with the latest technology and procedures in dentistry.
